SHANGHAI, Jan. 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — CooTek (Cayman) Inc. (NYSE: CTK) (“CooTek” or the “Company”), a global mobile internet company, today announced that it has received a letter (the “Letter”) from the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) dated January 5, 2022 and further e-mail communication on the same date, notifying the Company that (i) it is below compliance standards due to the Company’s total market capitalization and stockholders’ equity, (ii) the due date for the Company to submit a business plan that demonstrates compliance is April 5, 2022 and (iii) the applicable cure period for the Company to regain compliance expires on July 5, 2023.
Pursuant to applicable NYSE continued listing standards, a company would be considered “below criteria” by the NYSE if its total market capitalization is less than US$50 million over a 30 trading-day period and its stockholders’ equity is less than US$50 million. A review of the current financial condition of the Company by the NYSE shows that, as of January 4, 2022, the Company’s 30 trading-day average market capitalization was approximately US$44.2 million and its last reported stockholders’ deficit as of June 30, 2021 was approximately US$(14) million. Accordingly, the Company is now subject to the procedures as set forth in Sections 801 and 802 of the NYSE Listed Company Manual, and is required to respond within 90 days of the Letter with a business plan that demonstrates compliance with the continued listing standard within 18 months of receipt of the Letter. The business plan will be reviewed for final disposition by the Listings Operations Committee of the NYSE. The Company’s stockholders’ deficit as of September 30, 2021 was approximately US$(11) million.
To address this issue, CooTek intends to comply with the applicable procedures and is still considering its options to regain compliance.
